Casimir Cultural Center’s First Annual Pilgrimage to the National Shrine of Our Lady of Czestochowa
(Includes a Special Stop at National Shrine of Padre Pio)
Our Lady of Czestochowa, the Black Madonna, is the Queen of Poland. Her icon is a symbol of faith and a source of unity and strength for the Polish people.
The National Shrine of Our Lady of Czestochowa occupies approximately 170 acres of land. Located on Beacon Hill, and overlooking Peace Valley, the Shrine is the perfect place to come and spend time in prayer and reflection.
Every year, more and more pilgrims arrive to partake in the Marian and Eucharistic processions. The cultural events, most especially those representing Polish traditions, attract an ever increasing number of visitors. Pilgrims traveled in bus groups from all over the country.
The Shrine has also been honored with the visits of many distinguished guests, such as U.S. President Ronald Reagan and Vice President George H.W. Bush. Karol Cardinal Wojtyla visited the Czestochowa Shrine on two occasions: the first time in 1969 and then again in 1976 while attending the Eucharistic Congress held in Philadelphia. Two years later, he was chosen to the Throne of Saint Peter as the 264th Pope of the Catholic Church.
With the completion of some major construction, the Shrine has been expanded, adding some much needed facilities to accommodate the hundreds of thousands of pilgrims who visit here each year.
The Pauline Fathers and Brothers invite individuals and groups to visit and use all the facilities now available at the Shrine. They warmly welcome both Catholic and non-Catholic visitors.
